Hello there peeps! How is everything going? My week seems long and drawn out but I guess that’s the whole work thing. LOL! When I come home and sit down to craft the evening just flies by. I wish I could just sit and craft the day away but I have to pay for all of my goodies somehow! But it’s all better today because it’s Friday! I’m off to Manhattan tomorrow to see my friend Kim, always a good time!
For today’s post I give you my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. Our challenge host is Jen M. and she has provided us with this sketch…
I wanted to keep my card as clean and simple as possible. I started off with a base of Gumball Green Card Stock. The Very Vanilla contains some images from the Secret Garden Stamp Set. The leaves are stamped in Gumball Green and the flowers in Raspberry Ripple. I cut the flowers out with the coordinating Secret Garden Framelits Dies. For the centers I punched out some Summer Starfruit with the Itty Bitties Punch Pack and using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker I put some dots on them. I adhered the centers to the flowers with some 2-Way Glue and the flowers to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The band across the lower half is Raspberry Ripple with some Very Vanilla. I stamped the bees from the Collage Curios Stamp Set in Summer Starfruit. Wouldn’t you know that a little stamp and punch from Sale-A-Bration snuck in there for the greeting. The stamp set is from the Petite Pretties Stamp Set** and the punch is the Petite Curly Label**. Some more Summer Starfruit for it’s color and one more Stampin’ Dimensional to keep it in place. I really do love the bold spring colors and the little bees are just awesome! I hope that you liked my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. Thank you for checking in with me today! Have an excellent day!
